We analyzed reviews for this course to surface learners' thoughts about it

peer review in 4 reviews

The Peer Review, where you may end up being reviewed by a classmate who is prejudiced against your opinion and grades you falsely.

:D great, thank you :) Perfect Awesome for beginners It has good content, but there were missing classes to give more advices or clear any question students have, when grading peer review homeworks there were plenty of mistakes that would have been avoided if there were more video lectures or forums with teachers.

Again, peer review was unnecessarily harsh because people don't understand the flexibility and nuance of writing, but it's definitely informative and has made me a more mature academic writer.

4) The course depends hugely on peer review, but I don't get as much as I expected from it, partly because the grading standards are not well designed.
